First, an important note for everyone to remember:

A few Wikipedians have gotten together to make some suggestions about how we might organize articles about various dog breed descriptions. These are things to give you focus and to get you going, and you shouldn't feel obligated in the least to start out by following them—mainly, we just want you to write articles! But if you don't know what to write or where to begin, following the below guidelines may be helpful. If you add or change something that's inconsistent with the rest of the dog breed articles, that's OK--someone will most likely notice it and edit it for you.



Dog breeds task force of WikiProject Dogs


This task force aims primarily to provide a full description of the various Dog breeds. A consistent outline format is provided, including a list of various breed characteristics.


Currently active in this project

  • Avalik - Have worked on the 'list of dog breeds' for awhile, Belgian Shepherd Dog and the relatively unknown dog breeds.
  • NCGingerHounds - I'm currently working on a stub for the Teddy Roosevelt Terrier
  • ltshears - I help occasionally by adding pictures or info that i have on some of the breeds.
  • sannse
  • Elf - I've been studying dog breeds as an amateur for many years and have a collection of relevant reference books. I participate in dog agility, maintain our club's web site[1], and spent a lot of time with dogs, "dog people", and dog trainers; attend occasional workshops on training techniques. Also an amateur photographer.
  • Quill - I'd like to help as well. I know a little about lots of breeds, and a lot about a few breeds! I wrote my first dog essay (if one could call it that!) when I was eight...guess you could say it's been a lifelong passion, as I am now...older than that....
  • Wcrowe - AKA The Dogfather. Dogs are a favorite subject of mine. I am around hundreds of dogs on a weekly basis through obedience training and trips to the dog park. I hope to be able to contribute photographs of various breeds, photos and videos of dog-related activities, as well as articles.
  • Lachatdelarue - I'd like to help this project. I have already put some stubs up for breeds that didn't have anything. Dogs are my passion, and any excuse to do more research is great :)
  • Mel 'MelSkunk' Smith - My current Dog Project project is to make sure there are pages for each American Kennel Club member breed. After that, I'll move on to the Canadian Kennel Club...
  • Bremen 02:10, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC) I've been trying to make each breed page conform to a standard. Hope everyone is in agreement.
  • Tekana - I have been working on the dog pages for a while now, and hope to help contributing for a long time to come. I plan on becoming a canine behaviourist, and have spent my entire life around dogs. I have even worked at the RSPCA before now; so I am hoping to be a useful member of the project!
  • Trysha I'm a crazy dog lady. I/We have 4 dogs, and I am very involved in both training (including guide dog training) and dog rescue. Here, I clean out vandalism, fact check, copyvio screen, do general cleanup of the many edits that happen here every day, so I hope that I'm a useful part of the project..
  • Patricknoddy - I'd like to study about dog breeds, this is the place to do it.
  • Counsel- Dog owner, amateur trainer, and bird hunter. I am active with two gun dog clubs and help organize field trials.
  • Vortex - I am a self-proclaimed expert on all things canine. Canids are my passion in life, and I am studying to be a cynologist. I hope to contribute my knowledge to this project as much as possible.
  • Pharaoh Hound - Dog breed know-it-all. I don't own a dog but really want one. I like expanding breed stubs, requesting better photos, adding Canadian breed clubs to the external links, and fixing/adding infoboxes.
  • Keesiewonder 12:07, 23 December 2006 (UTC) - Already active for about a month now.
  • Blufawn I have been adding information on rare and extinct hound breeds, I hope to contribute more as often as I can. I have shown dogs since 1988 and have a passion for hounds of all shapes and sizes.
  • HamatoKameko 20:00, 1 February 2007 (UTC) - My family raises Anatolian Shepherds, and I hope to add to the related article. Whether or not I'll work on other dog articles I can't say for sure, but I'll try to at least do some overall editing.
  • ACBest/Main Look At My Profile, Go To The Bottom!
  • Watershipkennel -I will be rebuilding the Field Spaniel article as I have been involved with the breed since 1979.
  • Arithmia - I compete in Agility, so I am very familiar with the different breeds, I also have attended nationals events. I have owned numerous dogs in the past. I will m,ainly be working on the Miniature Schnauzer page, since they are the breed that currently owns me.
